This introduction to cybercultures provides a cutting–edge and much–needed guide to the rapidly changing world of new media and communication. Exploring for the first time the role that race, gender, sexuality, and postcoloniality play in the digital environment, Pramod Nayar demonstrates how these subject positions shape identities, communities, and networks in the same powerful manner that they do in the material world. From gaming, net democracy and connectivity, to theories of digitextuality, metamedia, and social networking, An Introduction to New Media and Cybercultures  provides a timely and essential exploration of all aspects of today s networked world.
